Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Timmy Tiptoes is a young guy to have been through so much and still be smiling! At less than a year old he was abandoned. Hit by a car, leg healed wrong and ended up on the PTS list at the shelter. Well he is just one of those special guys that the volunteers decided were not gonna let him go without a fight! Timmy was a puppy for gosh sakes! He was posted for rescue only because of his injuries. The volunteers got Davis to agree to repair his leg if he could find rescue. The rest is obvious! We at Whisker's Tails and Ferals always have a sweet spot for one so in need of help, love and care. So Timmy got his surgery and came to us on a sunny Saturday. Timmy had 8 weeks of crate rest, lots of good food and a sort of quiet time to recover. Timmy had no idea why he didn't get to come out and run around with the other dogs! Now he is all better, leg is healed, he is scarred from the accident, but his attitude is sassy and he is definitely full of himself and in charge. Timmy is also the smallest dog here in my home. He bullies the Great Pyrenees Male here (he is very used to the bologna of a Chihuahua) and any other dog he feels he can get away with. Timmy still sleeps separately from the others as he now feels the bathroom with a baby gate is his, so I spoil him all I can. This makes him a little brat, which is my favorite kind of Chihuahua. Since there are so many, I figure there are so many people that like the little bratty kind too. Wanna meet Timmy Tiptoes? He is unique and very entertaining. He is also very loving and pretty obedient. Come see this pup on Saturdays during adoption event hours. Please email Linda at lbredfire@sbcglobal.net or call WT&F's Dog Team voicemail 707-812-9030 to get a jump on the process, ask questions, and/or to confirm they will be there. This dog comes spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, and more with an adoption fee/donation to Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa, CA.

Height (in): 6-9

Character: Chihuahuas are very intelligent little dogs that are much more brave than their small size suggests. They often bond with only one person.

More About Chihuahua Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Schnauzer / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). This talented trick performing guy was originally in a paper bag with a homeless man. A good samaritan talked him into releasing the poor pup to her and he has been with her since. At 4.5 years old he isn't a puppy anymore but has many tricks he can do to keep you entertained. He needs proper introductions to new dogs but lives with 2 other dogs now. Buddy would love to be an only dog. He is wary of younger kids but tolerates them and will nip if pushed too much. Cats are fun to chase if they run but he ignores them if they just sit there. Good on walks and good on a leash! Come see this pup on Saturdays during adoption event hours.

      Breed: French Bullhuahua
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: French Bulldog / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Ace has bunny fur and due to an old injury can hop like one. He uses his rear leg but not always. His foster mom has manipulated it a lot and it doesn't seem to be painful. Ace was very under-socialized but has become a cuddle buddy at bedtime and sleeps on her shoulder. He has free run of the house and seems to be good on his potty skills. Due to his leg, he squats and uses potty pads when his Foster mom is gone too long working to expect a small dog to hold it without bursting. He is not a chewer but enjoys dental treats at night. Very gently guy. Ace had less than 24 hours left at the shelter in Sacramento when we pulled him. What a gem he is! Fostering him has given us a chance to watch him blossom! If you want a quiet small dog and willing to give him time to warm up Ace is a good choice! He would enjoy a quiet home with adults, or maybe older kids instead of young ones being the best choice if you have children. He loves vanilla yogurt off a spoon. He is a total gentleman!

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Layla is a pretty, elegant 2-3-year-old terrier mix that may have some Italian Greyhound in her. She is slow to warm up. Slower than most, but when she does she is very very loyal. She will sleep with you and it is the quickest way to warm her up. She has pretty much mastered house training and will go outside now every time that I can monitor. Her pretty eyes are expressive. She would do best in a quiet house with older kids. VERY good in the car. Put a bed in the back seat and she is happy! Come see this pup on Saturdays during adoption event hours.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Hannah Banana!!! This little Rat Terrier mix was found in January on the streets in a little Bat Girl costume. Because she was so fearful, Hannah Banana was likely a stray for a few months. It has taken her a couple of weeks to adjust to living with me. She was so nervous at being touched or petted. Now with some work, she is happy to come and sleep next to me, sit in my lap and get attention. She still needs some work so patience is the word for Hannah. No young children for her at this time. Great with other dogs. Uses Potty Pads and does like going outside to look around. Coming to adoption events to meet more people and work on her trusting people.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier (short coat). Princess Pinkie is truly one of a kind. This girl was found walking the streets of Vacaville and took three weeks to catch. She and her John could outmaneuver the staff who spent days trying to catch her, coax her and trick her. She outfoxed them over and over. Our leader was in town one day and went out to help catch her. Of course, she was caught that day. Fearful of humans, scrawny and labeled a feral, you would have a little trouble believing it is the same dog. Today Pinkie is enjoying the home life. She was THRILLED to get a ruffly harness. She embraced food in a bowl, would wear anything pink or with sparkles. This is a dog that wants a wardrobe. She is very street smart and likes to bully the other dogs but has started to play and spend time snuggling with them. NOW she sleeps in my bed, is house trained mostly. Got out twice recently thru the gate when opened. I was sure she was gone, nope I called her and she turned around and came back. She knows what she wants and it is love, pink outfits, grain free food, and a nightly dental chew. She has done a 180 turnaround and I have been so lucky to watch her blossom.
